Airline & Aircraft: Zan Air C208
Flight time: An hour to hour and a half.
We start off in the tiny Arusha airport where the Cessna 208 sits on the ramp waiting for the next flight. Mount Meru is in the distance.
The flight, some minutes later rotates out of Arusha, in arguably one of the most scenic departures in the world. Mt Meru’s peak is still in view.
The mountain had passed, making way for one of the most famous natural landmarks to show up over the line of the cockpit, Mount Kilimanjaro!
We carry on our flight across Tanzania, viewing more mild, yet equally stunning mountains.
You never know what you can find around Africa 😉
The mountains have calmed down, making way for the flatter African countryside from a
Beginning descent into Zanzibar, saying goodbye to the mainland.
Now approaching the lovely island of Zanzibar, crystal clear waters in every corner of the island.
And finally, an incredibly smooth and spectacular arrival in the Zanzibar airport.
Which one was your favourite?
I just want to take this time to thank the Devs for creating an aircraft that is so robust yet so underrated and creates many opportunities for flights like this. It has created good chances for domestic flying around some of the most scenic parts of the world which is amazing.
I’ll see you all later!
